Burger time at Barangaroo
It seems like every week there's something new opening down at Barangaroo. First time trying the Menchi burger - handmade pork katsu, mild mustard, tonkatsu sauce, yuzu-kosho mayo, Spanish onion and shredded cabbage ($14.80). Had a nice soft bun with a tasty flavour combo. I found the katsu had a slightly dense texture and the crumb crunch factor wasn't as noticeable as hoped due to probably the sauce that surrounded it. I'm also suspecting it's not cooked to order as my burger arrived in less than 4 minutes. It's not a big burger for the price so thought it wouldn't be that filling, especially with half the contents being shredded cabbage, but in the end I did find it surprisingly filling enough. Some chips on the side would have definitely finished the job in filling me up. The noticeable mustard gave some spicy warmth with each bite. Service was happy and friendly and kitchen turnaround was efficient. There's a fair amount of seating available. They give you a little sake box number when dining in although it's not the easiest thing for service to find amongst tables when they bring out your order but it's nice to have table service. I probably wouldn't get this burger again but keen to try the Ebi Burger with handmade prawn katsu next time and their fried chicken sounds good too.
